Welcome! - The Barony of Kraé Glas

The middle ages in south-east Melbourne


Take a trip back in time to the middle ages and recreate the customs, costumes, and combat of the pre-17th century era. The Barony of Krae Glas is a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) based in the south-east region of Melbourne, Australia.  We welcome all newcomers, of diverse ages and backgrounds, to the Society. We meet weekly to practice our crafts or train in martial combat, and host regular events where we gather to

We encompass a broad range of pre-17th century activities, from costuming, cooking, music, dancing, armouring, brewing, calligraphy, woodwork, embroidery, and any of arts and sciences of the middle ages. We recreate weapons and armour, we learn the techniques to use them, and we compete in tournaments. You can take part in many martial activities, from armoured combat, fencing, archery and equestrian. We hold feasts where there is food, dancing, singing and merriment.

We strive to conduct ourselves as nobles of the middle ages, therefore the only thing required is that you make an attempt at wearing pre-17th century clothing, and try to avoid the look and feel of the modern world. We also welcome all ranges of authenticity based on your ability, budget, interest and knowledge, ranging from covering over modern items, through to a completely authentic outfit/food/equipment. It can take time and resources to recreate a pre-17th century appearance, therefore we have items available to loan to newcomers at events.

Please join us at one of our upcoming events or regular meetings. We invite you to join our Facebook group and introduce yourself! For an idea of what the SCA is all about, read a newcomer to Krae Glas’s story, or visit www.scademo.com.
